You DIY blend when you need to make your blend either stronger or more concentrated (because you are especially delicious to outdoor pests), or less concentrated (for children, the elderly, and if you have any health issues or are pregnant or lactating – in which case you need to check with your health care practitioner before using any essential oils).
You can pick-up a bottle of Let Me Be and DIY blending supplies (e.g. spray bottles and blending instructions) from me at the Guelph Farmers’ Market.
Working with Essential Oils: Aromatherapy ‘Bug Spray’
Do summertime insects find you delicious? Do you want a safe & healthy alternative to the conventional chemical concoctions commercially available? Then you are in the right place. I will teach you my tried and tested ‘Build-a-Blend’ process.
Here’s what we’ll cover in this workshop:
• The bug deterring properties of essential oils and how they are used to deter summer pests
• Learn the basics of blending for passive and active diffusing
• Learn the basics for blending for topical use. I’ll explain what ‘concentration level’ means and why it is important
• Learn my ‘Build-a-Blend’ process and become a blending SuperStar!
• Learn the importance of keeping good notes so you can replicate your recipe in the future
• Make & take a customized ‘bug spray’ tailored for the intended user (e.g. adult, child, dog, etc.)
Bugs buggin’ you? Worried about toxicity levels in synthetic bug sprays? Find out how essential oils can help.

I am now accepting students for this 2-hour workshop that covers safety use profiles and hands-on blending training.
This workshop covers safety use profiles for four essential oils known for their anti-bug properties. You will learn how to ‘build-a-blend’ and create an all-natural, aromatherapeutic spray that is safe for use on the skin.
Your Workshop Kit Includes: a 5 ml bottle of each essential oil covered in this class (four) and a 100 ml bottle of my proprietary water-based spray (you will add your customized essential oil blend to a pre-blended base). You will also receive an empty 5 ml amber bottle for creating an undiluted blend suitable for diffusing.
You will go home with a customized blend for diffusing and one safe for topical use; and enough ingredients and bottles to practice your new skills and knowledge at home. You will also go home with LJ Turtle ‘Build-a-Blend’ worksheets and educational & safety literature about each essential oil covered in this class. Safety first & always.
The value of the workshop kit on its own is $58.25 + HST. For less than the cost of the kit, you get the full attention of a Certified Aromatologist Professional with the Canadian Federation of Aromatherapists. Feel confident learning from someone with academic credentials.
